Restoring Server Data

If your server is attacked by ransomware, you can use the backup to restore the server data to minimize the loss. Before using the backup data to restore the service data of a server, check whether the backup is available. If the backup is available, restore the key service system first.


The backup function has been enabled. For details, see Enabling Backup.


  1. Log in to the management console and go to the HSS page.
  2. In the navigation pane, choose Prevention > Ransomware Prevention. Click the Protected Servers tab. In the Operation column of the target server, click More > Restore Data.
  3. In the displayed dialog box, view the information about the target server. Search for the backup data source to be restored by backup status and backup name. For details about the parameters, see Table 1.
